The Southern California Institute of Architecture (SCI-Arc) is pleased to announce the fall 2007 Lecture Series featuring world-renowned architects focusing on architectural innovation. Beginning September 26 at 7pm and continuing on Wednesday nights through November 28, the SCI-Arc Lecture Series presents nine relevant lectures focusing on innovative practices in architecture and architectural theory

After studying architecture and history in Italy, Mario Carpo started teaching Renaissance architectural theory and history as an Assistant Professor at the University of Geneva. For the last 10 years, he has been a Visiting Professor at several universities in Europe and in the United States, including the Universities of Geneva, Florence, and Copenhagen, Cornell University, MIT, and Williams College. He was a Resident at the American Academy in Rome in 2004, a Scholar at the Getty Research Institute in 2000-01, and a Visiting Scholar at the Clark Art Institute in 2000. He was the Head of the Study Centre at the Centre Canadien d'Architecture in Montréal between 2002 and 2004.

Mario Carpo's research and publications focus on the relationship between architectural theory, cultural history, and the history of media and information technology. His publications include the award-winning Architecture in the Age of Printing, published by the MIT Press in 2001 (also published in Italian and Spanish, with a French translation forthcoming).
